Major Leader Of The Vatican Who Was Appointed By Pope Francis Declares: ‘There Are Homosexuals In Heaven, When We Go To Heaven We Will Be Greeted By Homosexuals.’

By Theodore Shoebat

A major leader of the Vatican who was appointed by Pope Francis last month to the Vatican’s communications office, has declared that there are homosexuals in heaven and that when we go to heaven we will be greeted by these perverts. The name of these heretic is Fr. James Martin, an evil and demonic person who, if the proper authorities were in existence, should be arrested by an inquisition and executed. These are his diabolical words:

“Some of them were probably gay. A certain percentage of humanity is gay, and so were most likely some of the saints. You may be surprised when you get to heaven to be greeted by LGBT men and women.”

There are so many of these sickos going about within the Catholic Church. I myself have confronted these demons and I believe that if we are going to clean the trash out, we have to confront them with boldness and zeal. I call this, Operation Whip. I myself have demonstrated this strategy when I confronted Msgr. Michael Yarbrough (also known as Michael Yarborough), a pervert priest who sexually attacked a young man named Hector Escalante.

There are major homosexual rings in the Vatican, what I like to call “homosexual hornets nests.” I myself have had experience with the homosexual infiltrators in the Catholic Church.

While we were doing some work in Texas we were told of a man named Msgr. Michael Yarbrough (also known as Michael Yarborough), of Holy Trinity Catholic Church, and how he is a deviant priest who forcefully kissed a young man named Hector Escalante on the lips, and how he was supporting a pro homosexual group called Call to Action. Here is a photo of Msgr. Michael Yarbrough:

Msgr. Mike Yarbrough

Well, we decided that we were going to bait Msgr. Michael Yarbrough. I visited him in a confessional booth where I told him my age and apparently it registered an interest and he asked me if I wanted to come and hang out with him. He fell for the bait. I found it very odd that a priest of his high position, with a very busy schedule, would all of a sudden want to spend time with me.

I accepted his offer, and gave him a call, and asked him if we would meet at a book store. He said that he preferred that we meet in his office. I found this quite disturbing because it was in his office where he kissed Hector Escalante. When I did research on Msgr. Michael Yarbrough, I found a 2002 report written in the San Antonio Express which stated:

Hector Escalante complained that Monsignor Michael Yarbrough kissed him on the lips and groped him in his office in 1998 when Escalante was 27, on his last day on the job as a St. Matthew’s Parish employee.

Yarbrough admitted kissing him but said Escalante misunderstood the gesture, which the priest said was common among men in his family. He denied groping Escalante.

Imagine, a man kissing another man on the lips as “common.”

I told Msgr. Michael Yarbrough that it would be better that we meet in a book store, to which he agreed. I asked him how much time he had, and he said, as long as I wanted. After doing some more research, I also found out that on top of kissing a young man on the lips, Msgr. Michael Yarbrough is a also a major donor to a pro homosexual group, called Call to Action, and I found his name on a list made by Call to Action designated as “major donors”. I took a snapshot of the list with Msgr. Michael Yarbrough’s name highlighted:

So, we had the meeting at the bookstore, and after some conversation, I busted him on his heresies and his scandals, and also paid a visit to his church where I was eventually kicked out by his followers (who probably know nothing on how evil this heretic is). Here is the video:

For years we have seen how the Vatican covers up for sexual predators and deviants, heretics and debased theologians. But we have never seen how the agents of the Vatican cover up for such evildoers in their private conversations. Well, Shoebat.com is now giving you this exclusive video showing you how the conniving is really done.

I confronted Deacon Ron Walker, an official of the Vatican, asking why the Church has done nothing to punish Robert L. Kincl, a priest and canon law judge who was appointed by the Pope himself, who teaches that if two men masturbate each other they do not commit sin, and who himself defended confirmed child molester priest, Fr. Robert Hrdlicka. This is after Shoebat.com filed a complaint against Kincl after we caught him teaching us depravity.

Deacon Ron Walker and the Bishop of Austin, Joe Vasquez, and Vicar General Daniel Garcia, did nothing to have Robert L. Kincl punished, even after they promised to take care of this evil. Shoebat.com realized that they were just patronizing us and so we made this video.

Here is the video:

Robert L. Kincl, who was appointed by the Pope, had befriended us as a fan of Shoebat.com acting as conservative, yet referred to homosexual fondling as permissible in the conversation. Having been shocked at his remarks, I told Kincl:

How can you, as a priest, be so liberal toward such a sick evil as two men fondling each other, or as two men having a “relationship” just as long as they are not going with other men. It is evil and it is reprobate.

I also told him:

It is not tolerable for you, as both a priest and a canon law judge, to be permissive to somebody having a homosexual relationship just as long as they are not being promiscuous with other men. It is deplorable, and in the words of St. Paul, “worthy of death” (Romans 1:32).

Kincl defended his position and responded with a rejection of the Old Testament and a twisting of St. Paul’s condemnation of homosexuality in Romans, stating

We do not follow the Hebrew Scriptures. We follow Jesus Christ who never mentioned gay relationships. When St. Paul mentioned such a relationship he was referring to the promiscuousness of the Romans using sodomy.

Shoebat.com decided to investigate Kincl and found that he has a dark past. In 1993, Kincl worked as a Commander in charge of clergy at the U.S. Navy, and while he was in the service he defended another chaplain confirmed to be guilty of child molestation, named Robert Hrdlicka.

The investigation revealed that Robert L. Kincl had even written the authorities, not to charge the pedophile who molested the young boys, but urged them to send him back to serve as a chaplain:

Catholic chaplain Lt. Robert Hrdlicka pleaded guilty to molesting boys in 1993. Before his sentencing, six other Catholic Navy chaplains and the church’s archbishop for the military services urged authorities to send Lt. Hrdlicka to a church-run treatment center.

“It is my fervent hope and prayer that he will be able to return to the active ministry as soon as possible,” wrote then-Cmdr. Robert L. Kincl.

Instead, Lt. Hrdlicka went to prison.

Shoebat.com looked up Kincl’s My Life page, to find out that after all these years Kincl is still friends with Hrdlicka the pedophile, since he is on his friends list, of which I took snapshots:

Just as we have Muslims, like Bergdahl, who have infiltrated the military, we have people like Kincl who have infiltrated both the military and the Catholic Church, with their depravity.

Kincl is now serving as a priest in Our Lady’s Maronite Catholic Church alongside Msgr. Don Sawyer. When I confronted Sawyer on Kincl, Sawyer vehemently defended Kincl.

Shoebat.com decided to contact the Diocese of Austin to file a complaint, and spoke with the Very Reverend Daniel E. Garcia as the Vicar General for the Diocese of Austin, and Chancellor and Secretariat Director for Administration, Deacon Ron Walker, who were under Bishop Joe S. Vásquez of the Diocese of Austin.

We asked them how could someone who supports homosexuality and defended a pedophile still be serving as a priest and not be excommunicated, to which Deacon Ron Walker, rolling his eyes, said that the Church’s main objective would be to reconcile him with God, and not excommunicate him.

It seems that the Diocese of Austin could care less if one of its priests supports homosexuality and defended a pedophile.

Why is this man serving as a priest when the Catholic Church, in its teachings, forbids homosexuality?

It is not surprising to see how far reaching homosexuality has gone in the Vatican. What other deviancies will enter the Vatican in the next decade remains to be seen. Whatever happened to normal sin? In the good old days, steeling a chicken perhaps constituted such sin, but these days, its sleeping with it.

Christianity is not about sycophancy, its about war against evil and the devil. We must arm ourselves to fight in this war.

    Such words from the mouth of an appointee of the Pope? The “great falling away” is here. More and more, Christianity is better found among the laity and the humble than its so-called “leaders.” But Christ promises to be with the Church always, “even to the end of the age.”

  • Jeff Benton

    Breakin my new rule for this one….

    Here ya go you anti-Catholic pukes…
    Right here in your face…
    The Shoebats are callin out wickedness WHERE EVER they spot it!!!!
    They are unbiased in fighting evil when they see it…
    Now Get on out of here with your lousy troll selves 😛

    Good catch Theo 🙂
    Daily mail has more on that wicked Argentinian mess too…
    If I remember it was from the 6th of may…
    I didn’t share it since so many jump to conclusions about my thoughts…
    I found it interesting that there was a Nun with Japanese roots involved…
    Wondered if that may tie into what ya dug up on all that pagan stuff from Japan…

    Im out…
    Keep up the good work…

    • Raph Sebastian

      The falling away only occurs in the true Church, this is clearly the signs of that falling away. There will be purification and those who remain thereafter will be stronger but smaller.

    • This is why its difficult for our enemies to put us in a box Jeff. They do not know what to do with us. They accuse us of being like ISIS when we fight ISIS. They expose us that we are Mossad, Vatican agents, haters, frauds …. and the list goes on and on. But they have zero proof and all this proves is that our enemies are slanderers.

  • Raph Sebastian

    May such sodomite loving heretics face their judgment. These are wolves in shepherd’s clothing. The evil these people allow to be brought into the Holy Church will have consequences. The faithful must rise against this evil before us.

    ONLY THE TRUE CHURCH OF THE LORD WILL SEE A FALLING AWAY. This is an example of that. The faithful will be the true remnants of the LORD’s Church that will last till His return.

    Cardinal Ratzinger before he was Pope Benedict XVI already predicted this. He said there will come a time where the Church will be purified and become smaller, but a stronger will emerge, faithfully stronger to the LORD, to the sacred scripture, the successors of His Apostles and the Magisterium.

    The predictions from Our Lady of Akita is growing ever stark as the days pass. It’s just two days before the 100th anniversary of the miracles of Fatima and the Apparition of Our Lady. Keep praying the rosary dear Catholic brothers and sisters, she reminded us of that several times.

    • Kamau41

      Indeed…Then Cardinal Ratzinger warned about the coming falling away of the Church of our times back in 1969. Here is the actual link.

      • 41, it looks like Russia has been conscreated to the Blessed Virgin after all.

        • Darren Neufeldt

          It appears there is still some dispute with that claim as in the comments for the article one is claiming that she said Heaven was not satisfied.

          “Sr. Lucia explicitly told you that the Virgin Mary was not satisfied with the consecration of Russia! “. In May 1989, to Cardinal Law, Archbishop of Boston, who asked him about the consecration of Russia, she replied: “The Holy Father considers that it was made to the best of our ability in the circumstances .But made on the narrow path of the collegial consecration which Our Lady has asked for and which She desired? No, that was not done.”(Brother Francis of Mary of the Angels, Sister Lucy, confidante of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, eds., CRC, 2014, 431)”

          I have no idea which side is correct, I like to think it has happened but if there is doubt I would then do it again if one can.

          • Here’s why:

            “But in the context of Russia it goes beyond the Communism, it is part of the Orthodoxy Schism and also the fact that Russia is the only nation capable of, once consecrated, bring back the world devotion to the Holy Virgin Mary.”

            It is sheer stupidity. Its the supremacist mentality.

          • Darren Neufeldt

            Ah, I see. I have so much to learn, and very little time to do it right now.

            Thanks Trevor.

          • There’s animosity between those camps, unfortunately.

        • Kamau41

          Yes, this is awesome news…

      • obfuscation100

        Ratzinger… one of the heretical periti at V-II, wearing a necktie instead of clerical garb.. making sure the microphones of the real Catholics were shut off if they offered criticism of the heresies presented…with a pedo brother… it’s amazing to me he ever got anything right.

        Just in case you haven’t noticed, we have a pope and an anti-pope. If Ratzinger left Vatican City he would be arrested. Frankenpope the Apostate is as mad as a March hare, not to be followed.

        Ratzinger’s comments about the message of Akita seem to be accurate making that message worthy of contemplation as it seems to corroborate the Third Secret of Fatima.

        “In the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph, Russia will be consecrated and there will be a period of peace in the world.”

        Russia has NOT been consecrated as Our Lady expressly said it was to be done by the Pope and ALL bishops of the world on the same day. Don’t you think your diocese and parish would have had a fiesta to celebrate if it had happened?

    • Sodomites are trying their damnedest to bring Christ’s Church into the world. Thankfully, there are still remnants of those who refuses to bow to Baal-Sodomy and fighting back.

      • Kamau41

        Indeed!!

  • Mart1963

    This rot is in all the churches, people no longer turn away and repent of their sins but embrace it as they march off to Hell.

    Romans 1:21-32New International Version (NIV)

    21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave
    thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts
    were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

    24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

    26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In
    the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and
    were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts
    with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their
    error.

    28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

  • susan

    I wish someone would ask this follow up question to Father James Martin so we can pull him out and disrobe him if he does. “Are PRACTICING unrepentant sodomites and queers going to heaven?” Let’s hear how he parses his words in reply.

    • ace

      Exactly!

  • My personal opinion?

    Part of it yes. I am more and more convinced Fatima’s prophecy was compressing several “end time” prophecies into one stream.

  • The Cathecism of the Catholic Church explicitly states that those who have “disordered passion” are to live a life of chasity instead of indulging the lusts of the flesh.

    The greatest problem lies when priests and bishops “blesses” the indulging of the flesh instead of encouraging them to stay chaste for the sake of the kingdom.

    • David W

      Trevor, the Eastern and Russian Orthodox churches are facing the same demonic assaults from the LGBT deviants. One example is a ROCOR Parish in the Midwest (as well as sexual abuse scandals in a few of the Orthodox parishes, one in Northern California too):

      http://www.monomakhos.com/whats-going-on-in-rocor/

      A Russian Orthodox scholar noted that a number of Westerner converts attempt to impose their own presuppositions, agenda and biases on the Orthodox churches. Indeed, there is a falling away.

      • “A Russian Orthodox scholar noted that a number of Westerner converts attempt to impose their own presuppositions, agenda and biases on the Orthodox churches. Indeed, there is a falling away.”

        That’s what our Russian friend says too. Parasitic mentality.

      • Kamau41

        Thanks for sharing, David. Very disturbing as we see and read about so much evil that has infiltrated the churches. No doubt, the falling away is here, but it will all accelerate over time. Giving the fact it’s this bad now, one cannot fathom how catastrophic it will be when the climax of the ‘falling away’ arrives in a few years from now.

        LORD HAVE MERCY!!!!!

    • obfuscation100

      That Catechism has many errors and much ambiguity. You would be better served using the Baltimore Catechism and material produced long before Vatican II.

  • BC

    Absolutely right…the finocchio’s dominate power/influential positions in society…especially in areas where they can indoctrinate/mass deceive (like almost ALL news companies–fake & real ya….& of course Hollywood, Music, & even the office of POTUS–“the last guy”).

    They’ve hijacked a former commonly used word for ‘Happy/JOYful’ (or Gay)…and, one of the Creator’s symbolic sign’s promising not to destroy the Earth by water ever again (Rainbow)….Thieves!!

  • magaforever

    I want to ask him if he thinks the original sodomites will greet him in heaven .. I whole heartedly agree this scum should be executed.. Absolute evil filth

  • Joan Simpson

    I wonder if could have been made a bit clearer? Did he mean homosexual by orientation or by practice?
    Just as heterosexuals are meant to be celibate if unmarried, so homosexuals are meant to be celibate.
    If that is the case I would have to agree with the gentleman the Pope put in office.
    But let’s remember the hope offered:
    1 Corinthians 6.
    Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.
    Praise God! He has the solution

    • Grace Ziem

      Are we saying God can heal us from other sins, but not homosexuality? I don’t believe that. It is a moral addiction, and like any addiction, requires surrender to Christ. This is the view also of a former lesbian activist and now heterosexual Christian, author of The Secret Life of an Unlikely Convert.

      • Joan Simpson

        Thank you for your reply. I hope what I write will be helpful.
        I used the quote from Corinthians as a message of hope.
        It is a looking at the tense used.
        Paul drew attention to a number of practices which the people at the church in Corinth had formerly been involved in.
        I say formerly because the tense he used was past tense. ‘Such were some of you’ It was something in the past. It was happening no longer.
        Now I know that doesn’t always happen. Some people have to live with temptations the rest of us know nothing about.
        I once, many years ago, listened to a young man who spoke at one of the meetings hosted by a well known Christian organisation. He told us he had asked God to take his homosexuality from him but till that point it had not gone. However God had given him the grace to live a celibate life. That is worth praising God for. I often wonder if God did answer his prayer and if he was able to love a special woman and be a good husband to her.
        Most of us have what Hebrews 12 v1 calls besetting sins. Sometimes God takes these from us, but sometimes he gives us the grace to overcome the temptation instead. Sometimes we fall into sin and need forgiveness. He knows what he is doing in our lives. We may never find out until we meet him face to face. We are to live for his glory whether he takes sinful passions away or only gives grace to seek his power to overcome. He knows best and though some of us may find it difficult to trust him, temptation allows us to get to know him better and bask in the love he has for us.

        • Grace Ziem

          I agree Joan completely, and you gave a beautiful and well thought out comment. Many blessings!

  • Tom_mcewen

    At the resurrection none will be given in marriage but be like the angels, angels don’t lust after the flesh and homosexuals do. So I don’t know what this to Fr. Martin is doing unless it is to follow his name sake Martin Luther to hell. The KGB would strap a traitor to a gurney and roll him into a crematorium while he was alive, as a lesson to it’s agents, a small touch of his future.

  • obfuscation100

    Why you are shocked at this situation is shocking. Our Lady at Lasalette and at Fatima said the apostasy would begin at the top. The Alta Vedita says Freemasonry planned on taking over the Church of Rome by 1960. Freemasons enthroned Satan in the Vatican in 1963. After that, everything went to hell in a handbasket. The Mass and the sacraments of the Novus Ordo church are not valid.
    Get thee to a real traditional Mass and traditional sacraments before you lose your soul.
    Read everything Malachi Martin wrote starting with Windswept House. Read Frère Michel’s The Whole Truth About Fatima. Watch the YouTube video on LaSalette.

    • Grace Ziem

      It is different to be surprised; I doubt he was. But shocked; yes, because it is WRONG, and Ted is right in going after evil! We MUST be outraged at evil in God’s church!

  • obfuscation100

    You have the falling away and the reign of the anti-Christ rolled into one big, fat, ugly moment. The falling away started with Vatican II, preparing the rank and file church members in the spirit of the anti-Christ. The Mass was changed, the sacraments were changed, the devotions were tossed out like yesterday’s coffee grounds, the doctrine and dogma are no longer taught.

    The great falling away has been happening for over 50 years… incrementally.

    The anti-Christ will be presented as a very charismatic human being, so that even the elect will be deceived.

    “When the Son of Man returns, will He find any faith on earth” means you better not get comfortable with the “Church” since Vatican II. It is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. It does not offer the means of salvation.

  • Vinny Zee

    “The road to Hell is paved with the bones of priests and monks, and the skulls of bishops are the lamp posts that light the path.”- St. John Chrysostom. “I do not think there are many among Bishops that will be saved, but many more that perish.” Why so harsh is he one might ask? Here is how Chrysostom viewed the sin of the bishop, “if you have sinned as bishop, you are lost. Remember what Moses endured, what wisdom he displayed, what good deeds he exhibited: but, for committing one sin only, he was bitterly punished; and with good reason; for this fault was attended with injury to the rest.” St. John Chrysostom, Extract from Homily III on Acts.

    Take not sin lightly, be it king, Bishop, priest, laity. We are all responsible before God.

    • Your comment reminded me of a vision seen by St. Niphon, a saint from the 4th Century who was granted to see the vision of the final judgement of Christ. He reportedly said many of the goats included bishops and priests. This also seem to confirmed by a 19th century nun (canonized as a saint, but whose name escapes me at the moment) who likewise saw many bishops and priests in hell.

      So the observation made by St. John Chrysostom is sobering and laced with warning. It also reminds me of the priest, Eli, whose sons were unruly and exploiting the people. When Samuel was sent to confront Eli, he refused to even discipline his sons, and they both perished. This story can be found in 1 Samuel 2.

      This brings up a very valuable question – does the illicit behavior of priests and bishops invalidates the Catholic priesthood?

      • Vinny Zee

        I do not think the illicit behavior of priests and bishops invalidates the Catholic priesthood. It more likely invalidates their priesthood. A Catholic is required to believe all that the Catholic church has promulgated as dogma. Therefore, if one’s illicit behavior is that which is contrary to the Catholic faith then it can be said of that person they are not Catholic and refuse to follow the Catholic faith. They can repent of course as is the reason for the ministry of reconciliation given to the church. However, the situation appears to be much more serious and extreme for the priesthood (bishops, monks, etc.) as Chrysostom was declaring.

        • Exactly, Vinny. The actions of a handful out of thousand of ordained priests and bishops does not invalidates the Catholic Priesthood. That is a point that Protestants refuses to consider and is why Walid gets frustrated when people throw mud and refuses to answer the question.

          For priests and bishops to condone behaviors in the face of the Church’s teaching and Scripture declaration on certain sins is to commit a gross violation of their individual office.

          I actually agree with Theo that an inquistion is needed to establish facts from fictions, give priests and bishops chance to repent of their erroneous leadership, or be turned over to the authorities to be executed.

          • susan

            Maybe someone can do a piece on what the inquisition was really for and what is accomplished. Most of us just see the word “inquisition” and think “horrible injustice”.

          • Grace Ziem

            I think of our earthly journey as giving us the opportunity to grow in a Christ-like way, becoming ever more Christ-like in thought and deed.
            Killing those who fail may make the rest of us obey from fear, but may NOT make us internally more Christ-like.
            Christ knows best how to judge, and He WILL do so. It is sad to see people led astray, but this must be similar to what Lucifer did;
            I think God wants us to learn how to think ourselves so we are NOT led astray, since He is preparing us to be eternal beings.

          • Vinny Zee

            We live in an age of modernism and pluralism. The ambiguity with which so many people live the faith is almost rendered void. Considering the increase in technology, wealth, and globalism many are content to live as is. I would be okay with the mending of the fences first between the east and the west.

    • racarrera

      This is the major difference between us and them: we are held to an extremely high standard, both the clergy (bishops, priests, deacons and monks) and the laity. The heterodox boast of being ‘saved,’ as if it were a permanent state. You see it in the quality of the ‘Christianity’ they possess.

      • Vinny Zee

        Amen brother. My thoughts exactly since I read some of Chrysostom’s remarks last night. I often remind myself and read the fathers regarding the narrow road. It is amazing how intricately tied in this all is with the Eucharist. I am saying this in light of Paul’s words in Hebrews, that if we deliberately sin, NO SACRIFICE for sin remains. It makes me realize once we’ve reached the summit with having and knowing Christ’s sacrifice and the seriousness of sin in separating us from it, it helps me keep (or try to focus on keeping) to the narrow path. My favorite conversations lately have been with Protestants who ask me if either I’m saved or if I’ve given up salvation for faith + works. You bring up a great point on the heterodox.

        • racarrera

          The Byzantine Catholics and Eastern Orthodox are pretty much one on so many issues. This one is one of the most crucial, I believe. That narrow path is one we must always be very careful of. We must tread with wisdom and faith in Jesus. The moment we become arrogant, we fall into oblivion. Western Christians outside of the Apostolic faiths don’t quite grasp this, simply because they want an easy, lazy faith, and then demand entry into Heaven. It’s an odd thing to watch.

            I agree. The focus within Byzantium weekly is Christ is Risen. This is our hope. No, we do not stand around all day condemning people to hell, but we are quite aware of its reality and tragically its certainty. But we fix our eyes on Christ, the author and perfecter of our faith. I think the confusion in the west is over who actually goes to hell. Yes, there are some that have lessened its effects with their preaching or the desire to lessen its reality. In regards though to who actually goes there, it seems there has been a widening of the path to salvation and a shrinking of the path to damnation. This is quite the opposite to what Christ told us. The path to eternal life was narrow and the road to destruction is wide. In the final analysis, modernism (and post-modernism) do just that; they seek to overturn all that was orthodox in place of their modernist views. Please remember me in prayer as I will of you.

            There is no “cheap grace”. We either do or do not follow Christ. If not, we don’t have faith, we just talk about it. If I hold a parachute, that’s not faith, when I take it and jump, that’s faith. Same with Christ.

            This is the black-and-white mentality of the West. You say you follow Him just enough to slide in under a bar. That’s a cheap, lazy way of thinking. The correct ideal for a Christian should be Theosis, nothing less. That means doing everything possible to be Christlike, within the limits of our being, as we possibly can be.

            No, I never said,” I follow Him just enough to slide in under a bar” that is TOTALLY YOUR words, and your interpretation. I’m not sure if I can describe how much I love Him. I have forsaken everything for Him, and glad to do it. I meant the parachute example: when He says jump, I do, however, whenever.
            I think about Him a hundred times a day, always asking what He would want, what He would encourage. He IS my life. I am 73 and I have been doing this since 14 years old; NEVER lazy, sir! I’m not sure you understood my post or me…

    Millions left before that. But, as I say, “You didn’t leave the Church, the Church left you.”

    As always, thank you for diligently, boldly, courageously and widely exposing such incredible evil that has been infiltrating the Church.

    The great Pope St. Felix III once said, “Not to oppose error is to approve it; and not to defend truth is to suppress it; and indeed to neglect to confound evil men, when we can do it, is no less a sin than to encourage them.”

    seems this priest is confusing heaven with hell

  • susan

    Each time I listen to Ted’s conversation, it angers me that they don’t care about all the young men who’ve been lead down the path to hell thanks to this one Priest. The emphasis is not on the vulnerable young who’ve been given the devil’s advice but how to “save” the devil. Priests come under horrific attack and we MUST pray for them and support them. Not all Priests are fit to serve. This man has a LONG history. It is shocking how many Priests have fallen into the enemy’s camp and are happy to remain there. This man has the support of his parishioners. They don’t care about the serious nature of this man’s sins and teachings. But get blessed with a traditional Priest and the parishioners will no longer stand for him. They don’t want the incense or the bended knees or receiving the host on the tongue or sharing the cup or homilies that mention saints or real candles in the tabernacle or on the altar. They don’t want statues of Jesus, Joseph and Mary in prominence. They’re hidden in a corner. They don’t want to hear sound Catholic doctrine. So the Bishops give them Priests to tickle their ears. It’s as if satan himself has begun to dictate the “rules” of the church. Pretty soon no one will be left who knows what was supposed to have been.

    I agree that this is a horrific doctrine – a doctrine of Devils. But the Apostles would have responded by throwing the offender out of the church – not by killing or torturing him. It was only after the Church became a tool of the government that it became a killing apparatus, something Christ and the Apostles never meant it to be. And I’m not just speaking of the Catholic Church – Protestants also killed “heretics”.

    I wonder how many people – given half the chance – would love to see a Calvinist Baptist like me burned at the stake? Or at least imprisoned? All I can say is thank God for the wisdom of Separation of Church and State. Until Christ returns, a theocracy in the hands of fallen mankind is a disaster.

    When the Church leaves its role as the body of Christ and seeks to be a tool of worldly power, it ceases to be the Bride of Christ and instead is the King’s Whore.

  • mspip

    indeed that would be a surprise!!!

  • Grace Ziem

    I applaud your courage for standing up to this evil. We know what Paul said about ANYONE who teaches another Gospel; this is NOT tolerable; Paul was chosen by Christ to preach the Gospel because of his courage and integrity, Christ calls all of us to share and protect His gospel..

  • Grace Ziem

    The founder of the Jesuits approved tactics that seem manipulative, which can corrode character, including but not limited to the concept: “… I will believe that the white I see is black, if the hierarchical Church so defines it.”. Christ encourages us to use His word as our ultimate authority. Because of Satan, this is the only consistently reliable source.

  • Exactly AJ and is whyI am confronting how Protestants manipulate the scriptures AJ.

    I’m late reading this headline busy with Fatima n church teachings, but as they say in Ireland to this modernist heretic ” go da hell.”
    There that should be politically correct enough.
